The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Busy beaver II

Still busy with work. Now that the majority of the Charlotte build out has been completed, we're now catching up on some loose ends that frayed during our trip out there.

[Attempting to configure a long range wireless access point] [To get inside only required removing a bazillion screws] [And my desk is getting a bit … messy]

One of the big projects today was trying to configure some long range wireless access points we have. I initially thought one of the units was defective, but it turns out that the serial adaptor, even though it's keyed, has to be plugged in very carefully, because the keying is worthless (and it's way too easy to plug the cable in wrong).

It also required removing about a bazillion screws to get inside the thing.

And there were also a zillion other smaller projects problems issues that kept cropping up today.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
